Daniel Negreanu Shares the Realities of Turning Pro

25 April 2015 , By: compncards
Any of you that have followed my blogs over the years know that I am not always the biggest Daniel Negreanu fan. I have always respected him as a player and for his job as an ambassador but there are times where we butt heads regarding some of his views. This is not one of those times. A couple days ago, I wrote an article about how I chose NOT to turn pro and instead took my bankroll and paid off my house.

FB Friday 347x300
Starting today, we will host a feature here at Poker Junkie that I'm dubbing "Flashback Friday. " Each week we will take a look back at a major poker confrontation, hopefully with a tie in to recent poker news. In this inaugural installment we take a look back at the 1999 United States Poker Championship Main Event. The Trump Taj Mahal poker room shut down this past Sunday for renovations but for many years the room was host to the USPC.

Daniel Negreanu's Take Applies to Everyday Life - Not Just Poker

29 November 2014 , By: compncards
Daniel Negreanu wrote a great blog about making his choice to play poker and to gamble. Head over to FullContactPoker. com and read it sometime. His words got me to thinking about the recent decision by Victoria Coren-Mitchell to leave PokerStars because they are now offering casino games.

Phil Wins 10th 430x286
The 2014 World Series of Poker is now concluded until November and this year's series has proven the most successful in history. Back in mid-May, I made my annual WSOP prediction and once again, I cranked out more wins than losses, but just barely.

7 June 2014 , By: compncards
The $10,000 Razz World Championship is underway at the 2014 World Series of Poker. Many like to call the game "Razzle Dazzle" because that is kinda the way you feel after playing a long session of this simple but incredibly frustrating game. Daniel Negreanu has decided to take the razzle dazzle to another level. His attire this evening has been the talk of the poker world.

Some of you that watched the live coverage of the 2011 WSOP Main Event may remember Daniel Negreanu throwing a mild tantrum when he wasn't allowed to talk during a hand at the featured table. When this went down, I voiced my opinion that I would not be surprised to see that rule changed before the 2012 WSOP. I wish I had put some money on that.

Daniel Shills, Talks to Himself, and Plays With his New "Thick" Toy

1 22 March 2012 , By: compncards
I finally got around to watching the Daniel Negreanu Vlog this week after Kevmath's not so subtle hint. During the video I hear the middle school girls in my head going "Dude, seriously? That is so gross. " About a minute in I stole a line from Finding Nemo and just started singing "Just keep shilling, shilling, shilling. " I want to know if Daniel got any kickback for his infomercial.
